This is a snack I have had so many times when I was a kid. Mom makes it very often and its so easy and tasty, flavourful. I will just sit next to the stove and watch my mom making this. Actually this "Spiced puffed rice/ Kara pori/ Spicy murmura" is very popular in Salem. There are shops selling these plain pori, kara pori, pataani and kadalai and so many similar stuffs. Dad is a big fan of all those kadalais. I feel these are lot better than the store bought packed chips and other junks. In fact, in Salem, a man will carry this in the back of bicycles in big sacs and sell it as “kadla pori, kara pori” . Mom always mocks inside the house in a low voice “ nolla pori norukku pori”. Now please don’t ask me what is the meaning of it . That mom! She is always witty .
After cools down completely, store in a airtight container and enjoy as tea time/ coffee time snack or while watching tv/ movie .
